Yes, you need a c++ compiler.

# If we don't have g++ for the target, mark all tests as untested.
if { [which $CXX] == 0 } {
    foreach testitem $seltests {
	untested "[lindex $testitem 0]"

I tested the need for HJ's patch by adding i?86*-linux to the list
of xfails and introducing a bogus asm to  My results were:

ERROR: /src/binutils-current/ld/testsuite/ld-selective/1.c: compilation failed
XPASS: selective2
XPASS: selective3
XPASS: selective4
XPASS: selective5

# of expected passes            190
# of unexpected successes       4
# of expected failures          1
# of unresolved testcases       1

The failure I introduced bumped the unresolved count.  The worrying
thing for users is that big ERROR, which is why I think setup_xfail
isn't sufficient for selective.exp tests.
